Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This hands-on workshop is designed to empower scholars with visual thinking skills. We expect to help them create confidence and acquire basic skills to move beyond text-dominated research communication.

Using design-thinking methods and the "Research Dissemination Canvas" - a tool we have been developing over the last years - we will go through all important steps and decisions that one needs to take in order to design a customized visualization for a research project targeting a specific group of people.

Our meeting will be divided in two parts. First, we will set the grounds of visual thinking, with vocabulary, grammar and tips to to create visual narratives. In the second part, participants will have the chance to apply their basic skills by visualizing a story--related to a research project--pitched by one of their peers.

No previous drawing skills required!
